This time of year I am catching up on last year's pages for my boys. Once baseball season starts, my scrappy time is limited. Tyler went to a baseball camp called Coast to Coast in Arizona this past December. I used my Gypsy to help me lay out my design. When I design a 2 page layout (wich is most of the time), I open my Gypsy to a 12x24 mat.
I wrapped the title around the corner of my left page and used letters from Birthday Bash (shadow) sized at 1.46 inches.
I put a baseball corner in the corner from Sports Mania sized at 3.77 inches.
There were 3 boys from Nebraska at this camp and I took a photo of them. My son, his friend Tony and a player from a Lincoln team. I took a square from George and unlocked the chain to size it to 6.69w x 4.25h (when you use Real Dial size, the actual size is 6.25 x 4.25 for a 1/8 inch mat around a 4x6 photo). I welded the words "Nebraska Boys" from Opposite Attracts sized to 1 inch.
Here is a close up of the bottom of the photo mat.
I opened up Layer 2 and copied the shadow letters on the top half of my mat. I put the regular letters (also sized to 1.46 inches) on the bottom of my mat.
I cut out the shadow in black cardstock and the regular layer in red cardstock.
I opened Layer 3 and put the three layers of the baseball corner on it.
I cut them out in red, white and black cardstock.
On layer 4, I copied the photo mat and the regular layer of letters on my mat. I cut them out in black and red cardstock.
My son is in the middle! His team colors are blue, black and white/gray so it was fun for me to use red on this layout!
I took some scrap paper and made a rosette to put in the center of these four photos. I used a 3D sticker from my stash and a red cardstock circle for the center.
I used this Karen Foster baseball paper and brown kraft cardstock for the base of my layout. I took these four highlight pictures of Tyler and trimmed them to 4x4 and matted them together on red cardstock.
I included a group photo of all of the players, and one of just the 15+ players. I also included a photo of the catchers listening to instruction.
I rarely scrapbook without using my Gypsy and Cricut Expression ~ it makes things so easy!!! Thanks for stopping by today!! Your next stop is Ashley!
